Some that look really good have lots of press and lots of talk floating about them, but even then they, meaning publishers and developers, do a lot of talking. Heavy Rain is part of a minority...little talk, but big fuss. And for good reason: it's not meant to be just a game.
Heavy Rain, made by Quantic Dream, well known for Indigo Prophecy (or the original name Fahrenheit), is a compilation of four stories that can play out in hundreds of different ways. Every choice made in the game has an alternate branch it can follow, something I'll explain later on."
